    Baking soda clumping in deodorant

    I came up with a deodorant recipe I absolutely love, but I keep having the issue of the baking soda making small little clumps in it after a few days. I use arrowroot powder and only 2% of the recipe is baking soda since it irritates my skin otherwise. I know it is the baking soda because my...

    Fragrance Oil Ruined By Magnesium?

    Hot filling help?

    Hey all, First time posting here. Hoping someone can help! I make and sell a natural deodorant product that’s coconut oil based. Currently, I melt all the ingredients in a large boiler and then hand pour the semi-viscous solution into the individual containers. It’s effective, but tedious and...

    Deoderant and chemical burns

    Hey lads, Ive been looking for an aluminum free deoderant all over amazon and at the grocery. Unfortunately, most reviews plus my own experience shows that a lot of them (even all natural/sensitive ones) cause chemical burns. Will homemade deoderant do the same thing? (sorry for my ignorance...

    Another deodorant thread - magnesium oil

    I mentioned in another thread that I had started to use magnesium oil as deodorant and a couple people asked for a review. I debated holding off on this because it's only been a week and I've had some interesting results. For those of you who weren't part of the conversation, magnesium oil...
